WILLISTON, N.D. - Official census numbers released today have Spring 2018 headcount at 1,164 making it WSC's second highest overall enrollment, and only down slightly compared to last spring's record-breaking headcount total of 1,168.
Part-time, online and Early Entry (Dual-Credit) students are up when compared to Spring 2017, but WSC saw its decrease in credit hours due to fewer full-time students.
"Even with a leveling out of enrollment, WSC did experience growth of 6% from Fall 2017 to Spring 2018," explained WSC's President, Dr. John Miller.
Full-time student enrollment is expected to pick up for Fall 2018 with the announcement of the WSC Foundation's Academic Achievement Award (AAA).
The Fall 2018 AAA will cover between 12-16 credits of tuition and fees for any eligible 2018 graduates from Western North Dakota or Eastern Montana and $1500 per semester for eligible Southern Saskatchewan and Southern Manitoba, Canadian students who plan to attend WSC this fall.
The AAA will join WSC Foundation's Williams and Regional County Scholarships to provide higher-education opportunities to WSC's service area.
Students are encouraged to contact WSC Financial Aid at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 701-774-4200 for complete details on the AAA.
